How to Prevent Elements Receiving Click Events With CSS

Simply set none for pointer-events in CSS, if you want to avoid receiving click events for an element or you want it to be click-through:

.no-click {
    pointer-events: none;

This comes especially useful if you have decorative elements covering another element that should receive click events. By using the above property, you can make sure that the click goes right through the element.
